In Theaters: X-Men: First Class

As a Father's Day teat, I was taken to see X-Men: First Class by M. and Z. A damn fine comic book movie, it really raises the bar on origin stories. The 60's setting really makes it work, I admit. Yes, they change some things around from the comics, but as noted previously, I don't mind that at all as long as the movie is good. And they did an excellent job establishing the conflicts between the 'older' generation of Marvel mutants. Fassbender really makes Magneto the star of the show, despite excellent performances by some of the other players. Catch it in theaters.

New trailers:
* Rise of the Planet of the Apes - As mentioned earlier, now looking forward to seeing this.
* The Change-Up - I don't think the cast can save that premise.
* The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - The new American version looks pretty close to the original, even in the look-and-feel. But they'll have to, well, American-ize it. We'll see.
* Real Steel - Damn, this shouldn't look that good, but here we are.
* Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 - Oh yes.
